What to expect from the Ford Focus ST One-2-One Experience

The new Ford Focus ST is the best hot hatch on the market. Quick, accessible performance, useable and lots of fun.

The ST is propelled by a rollicking 2.3-litre four-cylinder engine that delivers 276bhp and 310lb ft of torque. Helping put that power down is a brilliant chassis, a limited-slip differential, adaptive damping and 19-inch wheels. Resulting in a 0-62 time of 5.7 seconds! The end result is the ultimate hot hatch. The ST feels perfectly at home on track, encouraging the driver to attack the racing line.

The Ford Focus ST One-2-One is an intensive driving experience. Your instructor will help develop your driving skills as you enjoy your time behind the wheel. We guarantee you will notice a big difference between the way you drove on the first few laps and the last.
